IS/IT Strategy Capability Based Operating Model


Practical IT Strategy: this paper proposes a model to "operationalize" IT Strategy.

The paper is based upon extensive work with CIOs to conceptualize "IS/IT strategy in terms of IS/IT roles, IS/IT organizational capabilities, and IS/IT governing policies and principles." It presents a "topology" for IT Strategy with case studies to help understand the underlying concepts.

This topology (maturity framework?) can help measure and monitor the progress of an IT Strategy in your organization.

Geek Alert: This is an academic paper so it has sentences such as "...validate this operationalization and typology, as well as to operationalize the IS/IT operating position construct before such an operationalization of alignment is complete." A practitioner can get nauseous sifting through such text but believe me it is well worth it.
